A kind-hearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.
Guy Ritchie was primarily interested in doing the film because it was the Disney story he was closest to: "My stories are really about street hustlers. That's what I know how to do. And Aladdin is a classic street hustler who makes good." He also decided to do a children's film for his five children.
Cave of Wonders: You have touched the forbidden treasure! Now, you will never again see the light of day!
When we first meet Jasmine's servant Dalia, the out of focus distant mountains and sea beyond the balcony are slowly panning right to left, however, the foreground is a still shot and there is no scanning or "camera" movement.
Initial credits have the cast performing a dance to snippet of "Friend like Me." This is also a callback to the Broadway/live action performance of Aladdin. In which, at the end of the show, the cast come out and then perform an encore of "Friend like Me." Shortly after Robin Williams passed away, the current cast dedicated the encore to Williams/asked the audience to participate.
